HISTORY: MY FATHER WAS A MEMBER OF THE FIRST RECORDED STEELBAND IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO. MY GRANDFATHER WAS A FOUNDER OF WHAT BECAME THE PNM. MY COUSIN WON MISS UNIVERSE. AND, PELHAM...

...MY UNCLE LESLIE'S SON. FOR SOME REASON, HISTORY SURROUNDS ME AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF MY FAMILY. MY PATERNAL GRANDFATHER WAS THE CHEF TO THE WEST INDIES CRICKET TEAM. HE PASSED BEFORE I WAS BORN. OF COURSE, I AM CREATING MY OWN HISTORY, BUT LIKE THE HISTORIES OF MANY OF MY FAMILY AND RELATIVES, IT MAY BE LOST OR (WORSE), COVERED OVER WITH THE MISCHIEVIOUS DISTRACTIONS OF THE IMPISH AND BORED. BIG GROWN MEN COULD NOT DO ANYTHING BETTER WITH THEIR LIFES BUT TO PULL PEOPLE DOWN FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN JELOUSY, ENVY AND HATE. THE LATTER RACE-INFLUENCED, IN MANY CASES. OF COURSE, THIS MESSAGE WILL NOT SURVIVE THE DAY, AS I KNOW THE COMPLAINT DEPT IS TAKING NOTICE. GOOD!!!
